It's been a while since I've been around here but I have come across what seems to be a good deal on a Ford 801. I did a search on here and didn't really come up with anything specific. Maybe I was searching wrong, I don't know.
Anyway, a family friend has a 801 that he wants to sell me for $1000. It is pretty rough as far as paint and he said it had a leak in the tank he patched with JB weld and he rebuilt the carb. It needs new front tires but the rears are in real good shape. He says it will start and run and has been converted to 12v. It also comes with a 5' box blade. I've been told they can easily bring $3000 in running condition. Anyone agree?
Oh, as far as details and specs on this tractor. I have read anywhere from 44-49hp. Sound accurate? Did anyone make a FEL for these things?
